I'm not even sure what this is (besides the obvious that it's a helmet).
Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice? Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

It doesn't matter what we think. It matters what 17-22 year old athletes think, and I get the feeling they will think they are cool.
Actually, it's the exact opposite. Yeah, the kids get excited to play in new uniforms, but I would say the majority of the marketing ploy that goes into alternates is to excite the fan base. Most athletes know they have a job to do. Weather they do it in a Gold, white or green helmet really doesn't matter to them. If anything, the alternat ploy is probably more of a distraction to them.
And yes, before I get lambasted again, it did work for Oregon, 20 years ago, when they were the only ones doing this kid of stuff. Now it's literally a dime a dozen and more of the combinations are butt ugly than they really are anything cool.
